THE TOWN OF BEDFORD, Middlesex 
County, was established September 23, 1729, 
from parts of Billerica and Concord. 

February 26, 1767, a part of Billerica was annexed 
to Bedford, 



Population by Census: 1765 (Prov.), 457; 1776 
(Prov.), 482; 1790 (U.S.), 523; 1800 (U.S.), 538; 
1810 (U.S.), 592; 1820 (U.S.), 648; 1830 (U. S), 
685; 1840 (U.S.), 929; 1850 (U.S.), 975; 1855 
(State), 986; i860 (U.S.), 843; 1865 (State), 820; 
1870 (U.S.), 849; 1875 (State), 900; 1880 (U. S), 
931; 1885 (State), 930; 1890 (U. S), 1092; 1895

EXPLANATIONS. 

1. When places other than Bedford and Massachusetts are 
named in the original records, they are given in the printed 
copy. 

2. In all records the original spelling is followed. 

3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as 
items about the same family or individual might be found under 
different spellings. 

4. Marriages are printed under the names of both parties, 
but the full information concerning each party is only given in 
the entry under his or her name. Prior to 1850, there are no 
records of intentions of marriage found in Bedford. 

5. Additional information which does not appear in the 
original text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, 
or difference shown in other entries of the record, is bracketed. 
Parentheses are used only when they occur in the original text, 
or to separate clauses found there — such as the birth-place of 
parents, in late marriage records. 

6. The records are printed from a copy made, and legally at- 
tested, by the Town Clerk of Bedford.
